    Hi all, sorry if posted in wrong section, not sure where this should go...

    Try as I may I cannot get any per scripts to run on my server. I have tried them with various permissions, inside and outside the cgi-bin folder but each time I get a 501 Internal Server Error message.

    Please see the following urls as an example - Removed - and - Removed - and - Removed -

    my error logs pulled from ...apache/logs/ are thus

    I fixed the permissions problem, had a file set as 644 instead of 755 but it hasn't made any difference.

    I have played about in whm with Configure PHP and SuExec and every combination I try continues to yield no success. My current config is:

    php.conf updated to:

    # This file was automatically generated by the Cpanel PHP Configuration system
    # If you wish to change the way PHP is being handled by Apache on your system,
    # use the /usr/local/cpanel/bin/rebuild_phpconf script or the WHM interface.
    # Manual edits of this file will be lost when Apache is updated.

    # CGI configuration for PHP5
    Action application/x-httpd-php5 /cgi-sys/php5
    AddType application
    /x-httpd-php5 .php5 .php4 .php .php3 .php2 .phtml

    # End of autogenerated PHP configuration.

    Updating user configurable PHP settings.
    inforecursion depth is set to2
    Restarting Apache

    If anyone could offer an opinion on this I would be most grateful. I have been searching the forum and the web for days but still not solution. My server is a dedicated server and cpanel is not a supported panel so they cannot help.

    Many thanks

    Please stat the file and let us see the output:

    It definitely needs to be 755 file permissions (or chmod +x after you've created it). I don't know that user's specific UID and GID, so stating will give us all that information.
